The SkyPixel 2017 Photo Competition welcomes submissions from both professionals and enthusiasts for the following categories Story, Landscape, and Portrait.
- Story: Capture special moments in life from different perspectives, from the ground and in the air, and curate your story to show the rest of the world.
- Landscape: Whether it is a stunning photo of a quiet, untouched landscape, or the backdrop of a vibrant skyline, capture a captivating second of the world in motion.
